It has to be out door swimming and the brick training (bike to run transition)
Do you have any advice for our athletes?
Make the time you have count. August is not that far away.
What nutritional information would you give our athletes?
I always prefer the common sense approach. We all know exactly what we should and should not be eating. Convenience is not an excuse to eat food that will do us more harm than good. Eat a healthy balanced meal and don't discount entire food groups. Keep an eye on portion size, Keep away from processed and high sugar foods/ drinks. Prep your meals in advance to save time.
Last but not least, if you could recommend 4 exercises to transform your body what would they be?
A combination of resistance training in or out of the gym. Interval - running, rowing cycling and Swimming.
